Alpha King’s festive cousin. A big American Christmas Porter brewed with English chocolate malt, Mexican sugar and of course, tons of strange American hops. Cheers!

The bottle had a hand written "06" on the white part of AK's cap, so I assume its from 2006.

A - Very dark brown - almost black. Nice light brown thick head. Reduces to .25 head, but good retention.

S - Chocolate, leather, coffee and I think just a whiff of spice.

T - Again, chocolaty, bitter finish resolves to pretty much neutral. Some slight medicinal quality right before finish.

M - Medium bodied, lots of carb. Lighter and more carbonated than I expected. Pretty fair coating.

T - Definitely not overpowering - goes down pretty smooth.

Notes: This bottle is probably not indicative of a fresh one. I will have to trade out for a fresh one and review it. Pretty nice beer, just possibly faded a little.
